TWO PLATES OF DEVANANDADEVA

(1 Plate)

DINES CHANDRA SIRCAR, OOTACAMUND

There are impressions of two copper-plate grants of king Dēvānandadēva in the office of the Government Epigraphist for India, Ootacamund. The original plates were secured on loan a few years back by Dr. B. Ch. Chhabra, Government Epigraphist for India, for examination. I edit the records from impressions for the Epigraphia Indica with the permission kindly accorded to me by Dr. Chhabra.

I.─JURERPUR PLATE OF DĒVĀNANDADĒVA

The copper plate under discussion belonged to one Pathani Mahāpātra, an inhabitant of the village of Jurerpur within the jurisdiction of the Bantla Police Station in the Angul sub-division of the Cuttack District, Orissa. The plate seems to have been secured from the owner by Mr. Radhamohan Garnaik of Angul who showed it to Mr. G. S. Das, Secretary of the Orissa Provincial Museum at Cuttack (recently transferred to Bhubaneswar). On receiving information about the inscription from Mr. Das, Dr. Chhabra secured the plate on loan for examination about the end of the year 1945 with the help of the Revenue Commissioner and Collector of Cuttack.[2]

This is a single copper plate measuring about 9½″ long by 7″ broad. There is a circular projection, 2″ in diameter, at the centre of the left end, forming the seal which resembles that attached to other records of the family discussed below. On the seal, which has its rim slightly raised all

[2] The original plate is now in the Orissa Provincial Museum. Later I received it on loan for examination from Mr. K. C. Panigrahi, Curator of that Museum. I thank Mr. Panigrahi for his kindness.
